A Marvel-based MMOG has been a comic-book nerd’s wet dream for some time. After seeing the movie properties come together in Marvel’s Avengers earlier this summer, the desire to stomp around the massive universe has only become stronger. Gazillion Entertainment, developer of the family-friendly Marvel Super Hero Squad Online, blew the lid of Marvel Heroes at PAX Prime 2012 and LoreHound was there to get the skinny.
Associate Producer Matt Group detailed the Diablo-inspired MMORPG to iTZKooPA shortly after the panel that revealed three new playable heroes, Punisher, Daredevil and Squirrel Girl. Group went on to discuss the play mechanics, including the cleaner HUD and easy to pick-up controls, access to the vast array of Marvel storyline, characters and costumes and “public combat zones.”
